Ten years after WMD hoax in Iraq, US government spins another one in Syria

Who could believe that only ten years after the last US government WMD hoax centered on the government of Iraq, we have John Kerry, instead of Colin Powell, pushing a weapons-of-mass-destruction claim against the government of Syria on the evidence of what — trial by media? One’s “conscience”?

 Why the rush to judgment?

Why the need to bomb a sovereign nation and intervene in Muslim civil wars, even as “our ally” Egypt killed 1500 people with no response from the US other than the cancellation of joint military exercises?

Of course, the junta in Egypt is little threat to Israeli suzerainty over Palestine, whereas the Syrian government is actively opposed, hence Assad must go, and his exit will be paid for by the US treasury that we are told is too depleted to sustain Social Security for much longer.
